This is easy for me to say because I'm not coaching this team and Cam won't handle it well, but 100% from a football standpoint he should sit immediately.
I think he has one more possession before he grabs bench. Only reason to keep him in at this point is you never ever want to prematurely bench your starter and create confusion over who your guy is at the position.

But last game and a half or so is enough to conclude that they cant give him the benefit of the doubt.

Cam has had a labral tear and cartilage damage in his shoulder, almost have to wonder if something new happened.

His performance in camp and the first few weeks seemed so different than this.

Would you take the holding? Looks like they can get 10+ any time they pass

You can just feel that no one out there thinks they have a chance to win a game right now. Maybe a QB change lights a fire.
They can’t just keep trotting Cam out there. He can’t throw. Maybe he’s hurt or something but the guy we’ve seen the last two weeks is not playing QB at a remotely competitive level for the NFL.

Worst 30 minutes of Patriot football in a generation. Not even remotely competitive.

No NFL team can be competitive forever. Their Hall of Fame QB left a team that was fading badly at end of last year. There is nothing wrong with a couple of down years as long as they include above average drafts.
